In addition to the headliner, “Bellator MMA: Kongo vs. Volkov,” which airs live and free on Spike at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT, features three additional must-see main card bouts.
In the co-main event, home state hero David “The Caveman” Rickels (16-3) looks to put an end to the present winning streak of John “The Natural” Alessio (35-17). Not only is Rickels exciting once he enters the cage, but it’s his walkouts that also garner plenty of attention
The always-exciting Joe Schilling (2-4) will continue his torrid pace in 2015 when he meets promotional newcomer Hisaki Kato (4-1). “Stitch Em’ Up” is already slated to compete during the kickboxing portion of “Bellator: Dynamite” in September.
In the opening televised bout of the evening, former Bellator Featherweight Champion Pat Curran (20-7) will try to put an end to his current two-fight skid when he meets 24-year-old Emmanuel Sanchez (10-1) on short notice. “Paddy Mike” was originally slated to face Goiti Yamauchi, but an injury derailed the tilt.
